MATE 1.6 packages for Arch Linux

MATE 1.6 packages have been available for Arch Linux for a good while now. So why the blog post?

Over the last few months the MATE 1.6 packages for Arch Linux have been fixed, cleaned up and enhanced. Here is an overview of what we’ve been working on:

  • All Arch Linux specific bugs have been fixed.
  • New automated build scripts and build cluster.
  • Full support for the following platforms:
    • armv6h (Raspberry Pi)
    • armv7h
    • i686
    • x86_64
  • Packaged 9 additional applications/applets contributed by the MATE community.
  • Choice of Pulse Audio or GStreamer backends.
  • Cherry picked some systemd and logind features from MATE 1.7.
  • Cherry picked some upower features from MATE 1.7.
  • Cherry picked miscellaneous bug fixes from MATE 1.7.
  • MATE 1.6 PKGBUILDs now automatically synced to the AUR.
  • The Arch Linux package repository for MATE is now signed.

You can find out everything you need to know about installing MATE 1.6 on Arch Linux from the following wiki page:

I’d like to say a special thank you to:

  • Wolfgang Ulbrich for working with the Fedora development team to hunt down systemd, logind and upower fixes that are hugely beneficial for Arch Linux and also for contributing a good number of the community applications.
  • Sander Sweers and Stefano Karapetsas for welcoming me to the MATE Team and helping me out on IRC.

Now that the MATE 1.6 packages are in good shape I will start the process of getting MATE into the official Arch Linux repositories. You can help with that by voting for MATE packages in the AUR.

Debian MATE Packaging Team

Debian

The MATE Team is very happy to say hello to the new Debian MATE Packaging Team, that is working hard to get MATE included into the next release of Debian.

First packages are already in the repositories and there are many others in ftp-master NEW queue.

A big thanks to:

If you want to join the team, please reach the members on IRC in the #debian-mate channel @ OFTC.

Поновно осмишљавање Веб сајта

Одрадили смо преуређивање Мејтовог веб сајта и такође прешли са Вордпреса на Николу у поступку.

Главни циљ редизајна је стварање једноставне, елегантне странице која вам помаже да брзо пронађете информације које тражите. Приступ већини Мејтових ресурса не би требало да буде на више од два клика од почетне странице.

Споредни циљ био је прелазак на систем за управљање садржајем са радним током са којим су програмери и сарадници упознатији и који такође олакшава доприношење шире заједнице. Ово је основни разлог због којег смо прешли на Николу, који је творбеник статичног сајта.

Било ко може послати нову објаву на блогу, исправке или преводе на Мејтов веб сајт прављењем бесплатног налога на [ГитХаб]-у (Markdown), израчвати ризницу „mate-desktop.org“-а и направити захтев за повлачење. Захтеве за повлачење за „mate-desktop.org“ прегледаће наши Вебмајстори, спојиће их и објавити овде. Има још неких других предности коришћења статичког творбеника веб сајта.

Нажалост, одлучили смо да не пренесемо коментаре са старог веб сајта. Од овог тренутка на даље сваки нови пост на блогу биће повезан са темом на [форумима Мејта]. Ово радимо јер већ имамо [посвећени тим модератора форума] и не желимо да се ослањамо на њихово ограничено време тражећи од њих да модерирају коментаре на блогу на независном достављачу коментара. Осим тога, овај приступ ће привући више читалаца на форуме Мејта и надамо се да ће у потпуности помоћи у расту и развијању заједнице. Надамо се да разумете нашу одлуку.

Нове ризнице за „openSUSE“

openSUSE

Да би Мејт постао званично доступан у openSUSE, ризнице заједнице се морају изменити у „YaST“-у. Да то урадите, идите на „YaST -> Софтвер -> Ризнице софтвера“ и уклоните „X11:MATE:Factory“ ризницу и затим, кликните на следеће везе у функцији вашег „openSUSE“ издања:

Хвала вам!

Стефано представља на „openSUSE“ конференцији

20 јула 2013. Стефано Карапетсас је представио своје излагање о Мејту на „openSUSE“ конференцији!

Излагањем је представио Мејт онима који нису чули за њега, објаснио је разлоге за стварање Мејта, објаснио је разлику са сесијама Класичног Гнома и Гномовог Назађења, и описао функције и измене додате након отцепљења.

Other improvements

We asked people from distributions that ship MATE what they think about our Desktop Environment.

George Vlahavas, Salix founder and project leader:

We believe MATE is a perfect match for Salix. MATE provides us with a familiar desktop environment that is powerful, solid and fast. Also, the MATE team are very friendly and a pleasure to work with and this means a lot to us. Thanks for giving us the choice of sticking with our favourite desktop guys

Clement Lefebvre, Linux Mint founder and project leader:

It’s extremely important to us that people are happy with their computer. When that environment we all loved and worked hard to improve since 2006 was discontinued we weren’t happy to let it go and to ask people to migrate to something new or something different. We worked really hard on making sure our users could continue to use their computer the way they wanted and we met a team of like-minded people who had taken the initiative to support that environment and to develop it even further. Mint and MATE go hand in hand and the relationship between the teams is excellent. Mint played an important role in the promotion and backing of MATE and we continue to help with its development. We’re very pleased with MATE, it’s exactly what we wanted, it started where GNOME left off and with each new iteration it keeps getting better.

Joost Ruis, strategy consultant of Sabayon:

We don’t like how upstream forced changes to users and want our users to have the option to decide what to use. With MATE in our repositories we are certain our users can always choose what works best for them.

Dan Mashal, MATE maintainer in Fedora:

Ever since the release of Fedora 15 was released I was extremely unhappy and frustrated with my desktop experience until I discovered MATE. Now on Fedora I can finally have a desktop that is sane, stable, fast and most importantly easy to use. With the hard work the team has done to also patch compiz to work on the newer releases of Fedora I can now have my Fedora 14 (considered by most to be the best release of Fedora) experience back with wobbly windows, desktop cube, animations, and 3d effects. I can’t stress how big of a loss this was to many users including myself. Now with MATE I don’t have to worry about what is going to break with the next Gnome release and what crazy design ideas they are going to have making me have to relearn a desktop interface every single Fedora release. With MATE 1.6 I can feel right back at home on my favorite Linux distribution and get back to work.

We also asked for a comment from the company who donated the server where we host MATE services. Martin Verges, CEO of FirstColo GmbH:

We are really happy to use the MATE Desktop Environment. This way we can keep a clean and well working desktop without lots of useless and distracting stuff. Until the end of 2012 our whole company were working with Ubuntu, but with the Unity Desktop and many other “end user features”, we were searching for new ways to get a desktop, free of software that pretends to make our lives easier. With MATE Desktop on Debian 7 Wheezy, we found a good working, high performance desktop that just works as we know it from years. We hope that the MATE Team will keep our classic Linux Desktop and bring to it new life some with new features, but with the good workflow kept in hand. So far, they have done great job, and we hope that soon the Debian Maintainers will add the MATE Desktop to their mirrors (and of course, that many others will use MATE too!).

MATE 1.6 is the result of 8 months of intense development and contains 1800 contributions by 39 people, and more than 150 translators.

New themes

The team is proud to announce the new themes for MATE 1.6.

Menta will be the default theme for the upcoming new release. It consists of a nice GTK2/3 theme (based on Mint-Z Improved, no longer maintained, customized for MATE and updated for GTK3.6) and a child theme of mate-icon-theme with green folders.

Menta theme

There will be also other two new themes:

  • BlackMATE: A black based theme, without green.
  • GreenLaguna: A nice theme based on green color.

We would like to thank Wolfgang Ulbrich and Marcel Dijkstra for this great job.

Мејт и LTSP

Много је људи на свету који приступају својим Гну/Линукс радним површима преко тананих клијената и један од најдуже радних тананих клијената јесте пројекат LTSP. Мејтова радна површ нуди фантастично радно искуство на тананим клијентима; брзину, стабилност и ефикасност. Библиотеке, школе и предузећа која траже Гну/Линукс радну површ која користи традиционалне парадигме на које су њихови корисници навикли, сматраће Мејт одличном заменом преласком на Јунити/Гном 3 радну површ. И као ЛТСП и као Мејт програмер, саставио сам кратак видео о развоју и у једном и у другом.
